Google’s massive collection of free and open-source fonts, Google Fonts, has grown in popularity since launching over two years ago. The quality of the typefaces available may vary greatly, but if you’re in search of new fonts, Google Fonts is still an excellent place to look.
Google has made the process of using its catalog of typefaces on the Web quite easy, but browsing and downloading the font files manually can be a cumbersome process — unless you’re willing to get your hands dirty. For the rest of us, Google has teamed upwith the Monotype type foundry, so we can easily download the entire catalog for offline use.
Here’s How ?
There are currently 404 typefaces in the Google Web Fonts directory. Many of them are awful. Very awful. But there are also high-quality gems that certainly deserve a closer look. Beautiful Web Type show off the potential of Google’s free typefaces in all their glory. Trust me: you don’t want to miss this.
While not everyone will love using a third-party app to sync typefaces, SkyFonts is relatively easy to use and can update your fonts when they’re altered on Google’s servers (e.g.: when new characters are added). Best of all, after you’ve installed your fonts, you don’t have to keep SkyFonts running.
